For the first time, users create their own matched, longitudinal health data profile across all of their U.S.-based healthcare data sources through person-centric interoperability. Ardy is a visionary health tech executive and serial entrepreneur in biotech and digital health. Prior to starting Seqster, Ardy launched several clinical and consumer-based genetic tests as CCO of Pathway Genomics, and served as SVP of Ambry Genetics, which sold to Konica in 2017 for $1 billion.
